Time to ‘fall back’

Published 7:59am Friday, November 1, 2013

As leaves change color and temperatures begin to cool, it is a sign that summer has changed into fall.

It also means it is time for daylight saving to come to an end.

Remember to adjust clocks back one hour Saturday night as daylight savings time officially ends at 2 a.m. Sunday.

It’s also a good time to check the batteries in smoke detectors.

Daylight saving time is the practice of advancing clocks during the lighter months so that evenings have more daylight and mornings have less. Clocks are advanced one hour in the spring and adjusted backward one hour in the fall.
